I like the new look but how come not all of the forums are accessible from the pull down menu, like the edge for example? Or am I just missing something?

Good question... I wish I had a good answer!! That's how Rob set it up... ;shrug

I don't normally use the drop-down menu. I go through the Forums Index but that's just me.

I do like the new homepage as well, is their a link to a user's control panel from there like on the old one? I'm still trying to get used to it and find my way around.

I like the new look of the home page. More folks should visit it, it contains allot of new information and the layout is well done.

Thanks Rob,

Hi Ryan,

The log in box with the link to the control panel will be returning on the homepage. However, you can always access your control panel by clicking on UserCP in th eupper left hand corner of any forum page.

Hmmm, I just looked at the home page using IE7 at a 1024 x 768 resolution and everything was fine. I didn't have to do any horizontal scrolling and everything loaded within their limits.

Unfortunately, that's not something I can really fix. If you view your favorites from the dropdown menu rather than having them open all the time, there's no problem.

When you have the favorites bar open all the time, you're actually decreasing your browser window size to a little less than 800 x 600 resolution.

i can view this part of the site full width without removing the "favorites"

my son usually sets the pixels at 1076X768
and I go back to the other setting... but with the 1076 setting, I found I am seeing all of the page....I'll leave it here..

how to start a thread?

First, I am so grateful for the kind people who take time to make it possible for beginners like me to learn so much so fast about Corvettes. I own a 1961 that is missing the column "VIN" plate and 'thought I was alone' only to learn that (a) this is a very common problem , (b) there are solutions, and (c) that others were willing to take the time to advise. I had 15 or so replies within a few hours-some were meant as humor, but that's OK.
Question: I cannot figure out where to look, what 'button' to push, etc to start a new thread? this is frustrating as I have truly looked at every drop down, every spot I can think of to find this 'magic method'. Please advise. thanks, Harland

When you are on a "Forum" page, click on any thread. Be sure you are in the Forum where you want your New Thread to appear.

On the upper left hand corner is a tab: New Thread.

Click on that and you are good to go.

Be sure to give your thread a Title.

You can even start a poll with a New Thread.

Harland,
The New thread link is in the top left of any forum.
